    Puddles around Above Ground Pool

    Hi, everyone. My name is Julia, and my husband and I just had a 21-foot x 52 inch above ground pool professionally installed about three weeks ago. Since day one after the pool was filled, water has been puddling up around it. My husband did say that he thinks he overfilled it and then it rained for several days after installation. It seems like the water will simply not go away. Also, the water level drops every few days, and he refills it. Our concern is that maybe our new pool is leaking although tonight I noticed that when the pump was running, water was coming out of the skimmer basket. He had just put water in the pool again. In a 52-inch deep pool, how much should he fill the pool? Also, does it sound like we may have a leak?

    Thanks,

    Julia

    I keep my water level so it is halfway up the skimmer.

    If the picture is showing your water level, that's right where my pool installer told us to have it. If I get water much above the next screw above the water line in the picture, I get water sloshing out of the top of the skimmer basket. I also notice a wet ring around the pool. Water doesn't have to go over your top rail for it to leave the pool. The place where the top rail and wall meet is not water tight, so water can get out there too.

    Oops, just saw the pic belongs to someone else

    Good morning! Thank you so much! You both have made me feel a lot better. In fact, when our pool water level does drop, it goes down to that exact level shown in the picture, so apparently we are indeed overfilling it. I very much appreciate your responses.
